I have to note that I found the scent in this ink overpowering - I must have gotten a stronger batch? Anyway, it's so bad that I can't use the ink. It gives me a headache.

I was disappointed by this ink too.
It was labelled as orange scented (and I do love oranges!), but after opening the bottle I found it smelled of nothing but faint chemicals.
This was the last one on the shelf - could it be that the scent evaporates from the bottle over time, or someone opening the bottle in the past can make the scent disappear?

What a rip, buyer beware.
